Welcome to Lance Hendrix's Technical Site


This site is developed and maintained by Lance Hendrix for the purpose of providing a location for publishing and communicating technical documents created by Lance for use by other technology professionals. The bulk of the content is currently located in the TechDocs section of the site.

The information on this site is drawn from my experiences and real customer engagements where solutions have been implemented and deployed as true LOB (Line Of Business) applications. That is, while there is the occasional bit of theory or discussion of trade-offs, all the presented concepts, code, configuration, and examples are drawn from actual systems being used in production environments.

What's New

March 28, 2012 - I have started working on some of these documents again. I have been working on spelling, layout, and formatting issues as well as updating to the current version of Apache Forrest for rendering the site. I have also started editing some of the existing documents to bring them to completion as well as creating at least one new article regarding Xen 4.1 on Linux 3.2 lineage kernel.

June 29, 2008 - Since I have just created this section, this is the first update and thus, I will point out a few of the more significant changes that have recently occurred on the site.

  • I have moved the documentation of using Apache James as an email test platform from incubation to published within the technical document section of the site.
  • I have started a new technical white paper on designing and integrating an Enterprise Directory service using FOSS (Free Open Source Software) to the incubation section.
  • I have created a new technical How-To on accessing Apache ActiveMQ from PHP using STOMP
